Folks, I am booked to stay here. But have yet to do so. I was reviewing this site. And found the following response from management to a single negative review and was mightily impressed by the honesty of the team that manages this property...... "Please know that we are retraining our associates so we disappoint others." Management team, I hope... More

I was at the hotel for 4th of July weekend with my family. We had several rooms at the hotel. It was very busy with families for the long holiday weekend. The staff was super friendly and always greeting you when you passed them despite the hotel being so busy. Their manager on duty Saturday morning Rich was extremely helpful... More

I am just a regular guy, who needed a room for his family, and used a service that doesn't tell you what the hotel is until after booking. When I booked, I was impressed with the reviews and recommendations, and Crowne Plaza sounded pretty good. When we pulled up there, the lobby area was spectacular - very impressive. However, we...

We stayed just one night during a road trip. I am extremely picky, and so my husband knew this when booking the hotel and did his research. :) The place is great; well lit, pretty entrance, renovated, clean, nice bath products, friendly check-in. Breakfast not included, but there are several diners in the area. We have discussed coming back to... More

This hotel is set-off Route 1 in a corporate area, but is surrounded by trees. The grounds have a rural feel to it and offers a quiet night's sleep. Short drive to Princeton (although Route 1 traffic is an issue). Check-in was smooth. Our TV did not work, but it was quickly fixed. The indoor pool and spa were a... More

I stayed at the hotel for business. My room on the 5th floor of the South Tower was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Best of all, the a/c was efficient and QUIET.

The room was excellent. The staff friendly and helpful. Room service a little overpriced, but good food. We stayed one night and was peaceful. The only thing I would say is the hotel pool was cold, it was 86 degrees outside and the pool was very cold for an indoor pool. Also the signage to find the pool was minimal... More

Stayed for 2 weekend nights in the North section of the hotel & enjoyed our visit very much. Rooms were well sized & clean with good closet space.

This hotel changed ownership and recently got remodeled. The lobby is large and bright and the new rooms are modern and spotless, in my view several notches above the standardized, old-fashioned rooms found in so many US hotel chains. I liked the bathroom, with tiled walls and a walk-in shower. It would have been perfect had the noisy, antiquated air-conditioning... More
